The chief psychiatrist of Russia considers mulled wine medicine
“Mulled wine can be drunk only if very slightly, if you are really in the cold cold, as a remedy, and not as an alcoholic product in large quantity. This should be a very strict measure,” he warned.
Brune noted that the heating of the alcohol increases its absorption in the blood, which leads to a “strong blow to the head”. It is not recommended to mix the mulled wine with something sweet.
It is also not recommended to drink mulled wine together with other alcoholic beverages due to the different tolerance of alcohol in different people. “For some people, the processing of alcohol by the body takes three days and some for up to three weeks,” he concluded.
In October, it was to refute the myth about the usefulness of wine. It was found that drinking one to two standard servings of alcohol more than three times a week increases the risk of premature death by 20 percent.
